less than 1000 miles on it. the cleat shows very little wear. the pedal looks just fine. yet, i feel a slight back and forth, fore/aft movement. should i try new cleats? any ideas appreciated

does that effect the grip of the cleat in the pedal or just the release tension?

It should just change the release tension.

Which Ultegra pedals do you have? If they are the first gen SPD-SL with the black plastic "wear plate", inspect it carefully. It wears fast, usually near the front. Worn wear plates will make the pedal sloppy. They are cheap and easy to replace.
